One of Felipe reports detailed the $R 44 billion investment by the federal government of Brazil that was used to create dozens of projects and included stimulus in 22 sectors. The report by Felipe covered the creation and duty of the Program of Partnerships and Investments (PPI), the government agency who is to reinforce positive connections between the public and private sectors. The Brazilian government encourages public-private partnerships, which is a deal of sorts that uses investments by private businesses and the government to jointly tackle projects to help the economy grow and simultaneously create jobs and lower government spending. The PPI helped implement projects that covered road construction, water, and sanitation infrastructure as well as auctions that would lessen the burden of the expenditure by the Brazilian federal government.
